Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Nyiragongo Summit Shelter £££££

  • Democratic Republic of Congo

They are very much shelter and not much else. These fibre-glass huts keep out the wind and stay surprisingly warm but are very spartan. Inside each hut are small foam mattresses, which lie directly on the floor. However, after the hike to the top, they will feel like a king-size bed.

Mikeno Lodge £££££

  • Democratic Republic of Congo

This is a great little lodge and the only small, boutique-style property in the area. Each of the 12, solid lava stone and natural thatch bungalows sit in the heart of Virunga National Park, overlooking the forest or valley with Nyiragongo and Mikeno volcanoes in the distance. Inside each of the large rooms, the Congolese decor and warm fabrics are mixed with simple, but very comfortable African furniture, sleek stone-carved baths and en-suite showers. Given the rainforest environment, large open fires in each room, help keeps the chill at bay.
